My car did not pass PA state inspection on Sat, shop wants to see new tie rod ends on it.

What is involved in doing this job? I am a fairly competent hack mechanic but just curious as to where and how to undue the inner parts of the tie rods. The obvious part is the ball joint on the end, but where and how does it separate from the rack? What parts will I need besides the new tie rods? Rubber boots and clamps for the rack? What else? Thanks for your assistance.
